Coasters boss Dave Challinor insists his side must take one game at a time as they close in on their promotion dream.

Challinor’s title-chasers remain ten points clear at the top of the National League North after the 3-1 win over Tamworth, but the manager has urged his troops to not get too ahead of themselves.

“It was a much better result than the last game against Tamworth. It’s a really good win. The way things are at the minute I’ll only look now who we play next week, it really is game-by-game for us. That’s the way that it’s got to be.

“The last game was the most important, now the next game is. Now that’s chalked off, we can now refocus and look forward to next weekend.

“We put the ball into a good area almost straight from kick-off, the ball got cleared and we won the second ball and won a free-kick within thirty seconds and then got the goal. If you get the little things right, they’ll take care of the bigger things.

“We want to play forward and we’re better when we play forwards. In the first half, I thought we were very good. We had one poor moment defensively and it cost us a goal. That then gave us an awkward 20 minutes either side of half time. That puts everyone a little bit on edge because there’s only one goal in the game.

“Getting the third goal settled everyone down and we saw the game out quite comfortably. It’s a very welcome three points.”
